Unique doctor number

HAS recommendation: Single emergency call number

In order to facilitate the process for callers and, above all, reduce delays in the event of an emergency in healthcare establishments, the French National Authority for Health (HAS) recommends the introduction of a single call number, quickly identifiable by professionals, to directly reach a doctor authorized to intervene in the event of an emergency.

This single call number must :

  • 24-hour access.
  • Be linked to a telecom system for automatic and direct referral to a doctor authorized to intervene in the area.
  • Without any possible ambiguity, i.e.: a number and not a reference (such as "call the resuscitator on duty").
  • And when the doctor receives the call, he or she must immediately know that it's a life-threatening emergency (dedicated phone or multi-purpose phone with a ring dedicated to life-threatening emergencies, etc.).

Single number planning

Single-number telephone scheduling

According to HAS recommendations, the transfer of calls from the single number must be fully automated, which means using a telephone scheduling system with automatic call transfer.

To save crucial time, it is essential to eliminate any manual intervention such as consulting predefined lists, manually transferring calls, or passing an emergency phone from person to person at each shift change.
This can lead to wasted time or even errors due to human intervention.
